Im looking to do an extract pumpkin ale with steeping grains. Any good recipes floating around??? I want good strong malt flavor and I wanna be able to taste pumpkin pie. Preferably 5% or higher
Try Northern Brewers Smashing pumpkin ale, I made it and changed the steeping grains a tad, came out really good, might add a little more pumpkin spice than they recommend.
I did mine midwests version.. I suggest replacing the canned pumpkin with pumpkin spice.. Mine turned out amazing.. minus the pumpkin flavor LOL
I'd like to steer clear of kits. I think ill just whip up my own recipe. What's a good choice of hops for this style?
I used some Chech Saaz in mine, might go with something a little more spicier next time.
